Combined major degrees

Combined major degrees allow you to combine study either of two main subjects (joint major) or three subjects (triple major).

The following combined major degrees involving Economics are available:

Precisely which modules you study in each subject will vary according to whether you are taking a joint major or a triple major degree. They will also be determined by the requirements of your other major department(s). You will be guided on this when you enrol for your modules.

Year 1

Joint majors: you study 'Principles of Economics' and the appropriate Part I module provided by your other department. For your third Part I module you take either 'Applications of Economic Analysis' or a Part I module from any other department.

Triple majors: you study 'Principles of Economics' and two further Part I modules as required by your other departments.

Years 2 and 3

You take a number of units (or equivalent) in each of your chosen combined degree subjects. For joint majors this is four units in each main subject area. Some subjects have compulsory topics for study but you will also have a good deal of choice within each subject area.
